    To Mary,
    Being Christmas time I was thinking of you and getting ready to set my card list. My computer crashed this fall and I lost my card list and was going to make sure I had a good address. And found this news.
    So sorry for you but Larry is rejoicing with the Lord I am sure. My heart goes out to you and your family Mary. This is always a hard time. I will share this news with Marge in the morning. Not sure what she will remember. She was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in 2017. My prayers are with you. Love, Dennis “Red” Gruesbeck
